    I did some cleaning recently. It took me about six hours of course. All the reactors are clean, refilled and helping my reef be happy.

    Took a few pictures of the Duncans tonight, as well as a couple of the Skunk clownfish.

    I run a fuge on every reef I maintain, and feel it has benefits. I'm about to talk about it on youtube this evening, in fact. :)

    An update video is coming as soon as I can edit it, but here's a shot of my reef with some big colonies removed. More open space, better flow, and room for some new frags to grow out.

    I watched your live stream and you said you weren't too happy with how it is currently. Are you starting to warm up to how it is now?

    Melev is never happy, it's the tinkerers burden.
